[image]Waves on Saturn - NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute
An up-close look at Saturn's atmosphere shows wavelike structures in the planet's constantly changing clouds. Feathery striations in the lower right appear to be small-scale waves propagating at a higher altitude than the other cloud features. The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on April 14, 2005, through a filter sensitive to wavelengths of infrared light centered at 727 nanometers and at a distance of approximately 386,000 kilometers (240,000 miles) from Saturn...

This image of Jupiter was taken by the Cassini Imaging Science narrow angle camera through the blue filter (centered at 445nanometers) on October 1, 2000, 15:26 UTC at a distance of 84.1million km from Jupiter. The smallest features that can be seen are 500 kilometers across. The contrast between bright and dark features in this region of the spectrum is determined by the different light absorbing properties of the particles composing Jupiter's clouds...

[image]Saturn's rings - NASA
When seen from the unlit side, the rings of Saturn present a much different appearance from that familiar to telescopic observers. Relatively opaque areas like the B Ring turn black, while lightly populated zones, such as the C Ring and the Cassini Division, prove to excellent diffuse transmitters of sunlight. The A Ring, with intermediate opacity, is at an intermediate level of brightness.

[image]Mosaic of Saturn's rings - NASA
This detailed mosaic of the underside of the Cassini Division was obtained by Voyager 1 with a resolution of about 10 kilometers. The classical Cassini Division appears here to the right of center as five bright rings with substantial blacks gap on either side. The inner edge of the A Ring, to the left of center, is the brightest part of this image. The fine-scale wave structure in this region has been interpreted as being the result of gravitational density waves.

[image]Welcome Disruption
The line of Saturn's rings disrupts the Cassini spacecraft's view of the moons Tethys and Titan. Larger Titan (3,200 miles, or 5,150 kilometers across) is on the left. Tethys (660 miles, or 1,062 kilometers across) is near the center of the image. This view looks toward the Saturn-facing sides of Tethys and Titan. The angle also shows the northern, sunlit side of the rings from less than one degree above the ring plane...

[image]Close Look at the Pole - NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute
Cassini peeks at Saturn's relatively dark south pole, providing an up-close look at the haze-free upper atmosphere there. The banded structure around the pole seems to be superimposed on the characteristic high-latitude, mottled, turbulent structure (the white puffs of cloud near the pole), suggesting that the banding is a shallow, not deep, feature. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on April 23, 2005, through a filter sensitive to wavelengths o...

This poetic wide-angle camera view of Saturn reveals several small, dark storms in the southern latitudes, where storm activity has been prevalent since before Cassini arrived in orbit. Also notable here is the semi-transparent C ring, which is visible against the backdrop of the planet. The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on April 23, 2005, through a filter sensitive to wavelengths of infrared light centered at 1028 nanometers and at a distance of ...

[image]Outbound View - NASA/JPL/Space Science Institute
Cassini's flyby of Titan on July 22, 2006 sent the spacecraft into a more inclined orbit of Saturn. This remarkably clear view from that flyby shows the moon's characteristically dark mid-latitudes, and more southern terrain than the Cassini spacecraft has usually been able to glimpse. This was the first in a series of "illuminated outbound flybys" of Titan (5,150 kilometers, or 3,200 miles across) where the illuminated hemisphere was visible following the closest approach...

Straining to make out the surface of Titan through its murky atmosphere, the Cassini spacecraft's wide angle camera manages to exploit one of the infrared spectral windows where the particulate smog is transparent enough for a peek. The Senkyo region is visible in the north, while Mezzoramia lies to the south in this view of Titan (5,150 kilometers, or 3,200 miles across). (See the December 2006 Map of Titan at .)

Both the limb of Saturn and the shadow of its ring system are seen through the transparent C-ring in this striking picture taken by NASA's Voyager 1 on Nov. 9, 1980 at a distance of 4.5 million kilometers (3 million miles). Gaps and regions of high transparency are seen throughout the C-ring, especially in the area closest to the opaque B-ring. Shadows of the A-, B-, and C-rings are clearly visible on the disk of Saturn...

This is an artists concept of Cassini during the Saturn Orbit Insertion(SOI) maneuver, just after the main engine has begun firing. The spacecraft is moving out of the plane of the page and to the right(firing to reduce its spacecraft velocity with respect to Saturn) and has just crossed the ring plane. The SOI maneuver, which is approximately 90 minutes long, will allow Cassini to be captured by Saturn's gravity into a five-month orbit.Cassini's close proximity to the planet after the maneuver ...

In this simulated image of Saturn's rings, color is used to present information about ring particle sizes in different regions based on the measured effects of three radio signals. Three simultaneous radio signals of 0.94, 3.6 and 13 centimeter wavelength (Ka-, X- and S-bands) were sent from the Cassini spacecraft through the rings to Earth. The observed change of each signal as Cassini moved behind the rings provided a profile of the distribution of ring material as a function of distance from ...

Scientists first saw these somewhat wedge-shaped, transient clouds of tiny particles known as ''spokes'' in images from NASA's Voyager spacecraft. They dubbed these features in Saturn's B ring ''spokes'' because they looked like bicycle spokes. An electrostatic charge, the way static electricity on Earth can raise the hair on your arms, appears to be levitating tiny ring particles above the ring plane, but scientists are still figuring out how the particles get that charge as they analyze images...
